The eighth day of Aki Basho turned out to be successful for Levan Gorgadze. Tochinoshin beat Maegashira 4 West Shodai.
The Georgian has 3 wins and 5 defeats at the current basho. He needs to win at least 5 from the remaining 8 bouts in order to have positive balance. Otherwise, Tochi will lose the title of ozeki.
Gorgadze’s next opponent will be Komusubi Shota Endo.
